Ethic inherited from Kransberg

Bolting is not allowed. A number of large raptors have built nests in the vicinity of the route Swift Crag. If new routes are attempted, the raptors should not be disturbed. Also, please note that no climbing is allowed west of Auf Wiedersehen. This is due to research work being carried out on the vulture colonies in the area.
